i would remove the featherfin as it's african in origins and requires completely different water parameters then the jack or sd's, in the long run you'll notice that sd's require alot of space, i had a group of 10 in a 160g and they still banged into stuff frequently. in a 75g you are pretty much fully stocked with a JD and the sd's, but given that jd's grow slowly, you'll have plenty of time.

160 gallon south american
190 gallon malawi

I wouldn't add anymore fish. With just the SD, FM, and JD, you are already fully stocked.

+1 on the above

Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead focus on what to do next
